Mexico 🇲🇽


Mexico has implemented the following good practices:


The project “Open Government: Co-creation at the Local Level” Implementation and Development of Open Government Policies and Proactive Transparency in Mexico seeks to promote and appropriate open government principles and practices at the local level (federal entities and municipalities in Mexico). The initiative therefore promotes the creation of formal and permanent forums for dialogue and collaboration (local technical secretariats), which seeks to build capacity for the civil service, individuals from civil society organizations, local transparency enforcement bodies, and among the citizenry, for them to be able to collaboratively identify and resolve public problems, including the incidence of corruption.
Open Government Microsite of the National Institute for Transparency, Access to Public Information, and Protection of Personal Data (INAI) - As a constitutionally autonomous Mexican State agency, under its regulatory framework INAI is required to promote across the country various open government practices to promote anti-corruption efforts, accountability, and access to information. Accordingly, since 2015 the DGGAT has maintained various projects that are displayed on its website, the aim being for the obligated parties to explore good practices and replicate the model provided for them.
The Transparency Obligations Portal System is a technological tool used by obligated entities to provide the public with information about transparency obligations under the General Law on Transparency and Access to Public Information and the Federal Law on Transparency and Access to Information. This system of transparency portals provides citizens with information about federal budget programs whereby subsidy resources are granted to the Technological and Polytechnic Universities, in order to make the discharging of public resources more transparent.
The Simplified Construction Facility Program (VECS) is geared towards simplifying the transactions involved, in order to begin and complete a low-impact building targeting commercial activities, of a dimension up to 1,500 square meters, on barren wastelands, taking into consideration as well those corresponding transactions for completion of the work. It seeks to benefit applicants intending to construct buildings involving no significant risk or impact of a social, urban, vehicular, ecological, or any other nature.
In 2016 the International Standardization Organization published the ISO50001 standard: Anti-Bribery Management System, which sets the international standard for those systems. Adoption of that norm makes public servants operate more transparently, by identifying risks and putting oversight mechanisms and procedures in place to combat some of the corruption in the public service, especially given the fact that under the National Anti-Corruption System, institutions must develop instruments to guide anti-corruption policies and programs in order to consolidate that system.
